unfound01 is an in-house release, with two members of the (un)foundsound crew in action: three tracks by someone else, aka sean o'neal, and a remix by fusiphorm, aka cyhl. the three original pieces come in someone else's now characteristic style, which have seen him release on labels like musik krause, tuning spork, remains, microcosm and of course foundsound: minimal quirkiness, with groovy basslines and a subtle use of field recordings, always with an eye directed at the dancefloor. the title track is revisited by fusiphorm for his production debut, in a remix that deliberately adds an even housier sensibility to the original goofyness.

Dink and Strum the first and last work on funky minimal
From the time I heard the pre-release version some five years ago, I knew that Sean O'Neal (someone else) had stumbled upon a sound that clearly be branded, his own.
Warbled bassline, phased stereo 'goof bits' and the under processed 'dink' guitar hit along with deconstructed percussive elements coalesce into what is near IDM a sensible volumes and a dancefloor filler when pumped through aggressive club systems.
I'm addicted to the Someone Else brand of techno; Dink and Strum should be viewed as the track that 'started all the fuss'.
